Kwame active; Rams a mess

Not only is Kwame Harris still on the team, he's active this week. The 49ers' eight inactives for today are tight end Billy Bajema, who has an ankle injury, safety Dashon Goldson, cornerback Donald Strickland, guard Tony Wragge, defensive end Atiyyah Ellison, receiver Jason Hill and defensive end Ray McDonald. Shaun Hill is the third quarterback. The 49ers say they still haven't received any trade interest for Harris. That may change if Javon Kearse gets six sacks this week ...
Meanwhile, the Rams are in tatters. They lost left tackle Orlando Pace last weekend because of a shoulder injury. Here are their other lineup changes: guard Claude Terrell replaces Richie Incognito; linebacker Chris Draft replaces Pisa Tinoisamoa; cornerback Lenny Walls replaces Tye Hill. The team already was without cornerback Fakhir Brown, who is serving a steroid suspension, so they had to elevate rookie Darius "Who?" Vinnett to the active roster.
What does this mean? It means the 49ers really should win this game. Only one Rams offensive lineman, center Brett Romberg, is playing the same position he played last week. And I haven't seen a secondary this bad since the 49ers circa 2004-05. If Alex Smith, Darrell Jackson and Vernon Davis can't get something going today -- well, they'll have some 'splaining to do this week.
